Society of St Vincent de Paul

The aim of the St Vincent de Paul Society is to tackle poverty in all its forms through the provision of practical assistance to those in need. The concept of need is broader than financial hardship, so visiting the sick, the lonely, the imprisoned; form a large proportion of the Society’s work. While they act as a short-term safety net for those who fall outside the care of the Welfare State or need emergency financial support, they also try to embrace those who are marginalised by helping them to rekindle their self-respect and sense of worth. Their mission is also to rectify the causes of poverty which perpetuate the problems faced by those we work with.

They provide help and support to people in all throughout the country . In addition to providing direct assistance for those who need it, they try to promote self-sufficiency. Any assistance offered by the Society is given in a non-judgemental spirit of compassion, based on the need of the individual or family.
